Schools aren't fixing lead in water | I-Team

Despite hundreds of millions of dollars in COVID-19 relief money, Maryland school districts told the I-Team they're not using those funds to replace lead pipes or fixtures. New data obtained by the 11 News I-Team from the Maryland Department of the Environment shows Baltimore City Public Schools is one of many Maryland K-12 school districts where lead contaminates the water. The I-Team first reported Thursday that MDE data shows more than 1,100 samples of water taken last year from local schools had illegal levels of lead, and many Baltimore-area school districts have not fixed the issue.
